About this book

The sixth in Stephen Jay Gould's great series in reflections on biology, natural history and culture. His previous books, such as Bully for Brontosaurus and Wonderful Life, have shown a very wide readership that science can be an exciting, joyful pursuit, and also that it is deeply influenced by culture and society. In this latest book, Gould widens the focus of discussion to take in some of the largest conceptual issues in the history of life, asking what very recent discoveries in Cambrian palaeontology have to tell us about the pattern of evolution, and exploring the different fates of the metaphors 'fortune' and 'progress' in Darwinian science.
